I made my first cake back in November 2009 and was totally hooked! Having 3 children was a great way for me to practice and try new things each birthday. I knew it was a skill I wanted to progress so I signed up to my local college back in September 2010 to study cake decorating.

I have recently completed 4 years of the ABC Cake Decoration course with level 1, level 2 and level 3 all being passed with distinctions. All pieces of work produced over the course have been awarded distinctions.

I have won 9 Gold awards and 2 Silver awards of which 10 have won "Best in Class" in the Welsh International Culinary Championships 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2016. I won "Best in Show" 2014 and 2016 which I'm so overjoyed with. Especially as I won a new Kitchen Aid mixer for the 2016 show! My other awards include a Gold from Birmingham Cake International 2013 and a Gold and 2nd place in the student section from Birmingham Cake International 2014!

I produce cakes for family and friends around working part time and caring for my family. My plan is to take the plunge and have my own business one day in the future!!!
